“Corey always pushes me to the max by his natural intensity and constant pursuit of excellence. It's inspired me to become a deeper, more versatile musician. He's truly changed my life forever, making me a better man and artist, and for this I am so thankful.”
That pursuit of excellence is on full display on Jonathan’s major label debut album Mr. Optimist Blues. Released in the midst of a hugely successful Top Ten run at radio with the single “Daniella Denmark,” the album debuted at #3 on Canada’s national album sales chart and #1 in Roy’s home province of Quebec.
In the summer of 2017, while performing in front of over 25,000 fans at the Festival d’Ete in his hometown of Quebec City, Jonathan received a gold record for “Daniella Denmark.”
Mr. Optimist Blues also features the Top 5 Quebec radio hit “You’re My Ace” and “Freeze Time” written by Corey Hart and produced by Danish DJs Deepened.
